of those. not that fast, but i'd say 2 to 4 weeks for the cookie cutter deals that aren't a change of use, or don't need an operations plan, or needs historic review, or they don't need a building permit. >> maybe i can elaborate on that as well. i would note a couple of things if you really want to be helpful. if you look at the port's's delegated authority to myself and the staff, it is extremely narrow. so, if there is a tenant who doesn't want to agree to a paragraph in that 30-page lease, it takes awhile to negotiate that and for them to decide whether it's worth it for them to come back to the port commission. we don't have the delegative authority to negotiate anything that's not a material change to the standard form lease. that's where one of the hiccups occurs. a second hiccup occurs because sometimes people put on their application that they want to be a warehouse, and then as we're clarifying it turns out they want to be a warehouse and a retail space and that runs afoul of our retail bidding process. so, we work on that. the third hiccup occurs because they need a regulatory
at building mezzanines. so, the first floor is a mixed use component, public access, the docks, the retail at the front, and then office at the rear of the project. we think this is a really unique approach to putting the second floor in. if you've been in the building, it has a very tall clear story in the middle of the building. so, rather than pulling the mezzanines out to the glass line, we're helping to pull them into the middle of the building and build atriums between those mezzanines so we take advantage of the tallest part. and we don't push out against the glass line. we're going to enhance the transparency of the exterior of the building by not putting a floor right up against the glass. as you know, this is about what the building looks like today. our vision for transformation does something along the lines of this, activating that north apron again, and picking up on the existing facade and improvements which we really think, if they're polished, the basic improvements are great. again, looking at the pier, this has more dock doors than other piers when you look at t. that ar
